Neurobiology, genetics, life events, coping strategies – all have an impact on the development and maintenance of mental health. Psychiatric nursing continues to work at the interface of these factors through psychoeducation, psychotherapy, medications and other evidence-based practices. Yet the conceptual frameworks of psychiatric nursing practice continue to evolve and respond to changing perceptions and new research.

The Psychiatric Nursing Conference provides an exceptional opportunity to learn new ideas and strategies to take your practice to the next level. Explore how national trends in seclusion and restraint reduction, recovery and integrated care concepts, and changing approaches to drug use prevention and treatment can translate into your daily practice. Join us and investigate the options with our expert faculty and your colleagues from across the country!

Highlights of the 2011 conference include:

    * An exciting Preconference offered on Trauma and Its Impact on Psychological and Behavioral Functioning, focused on working with individuals who have experienced traumatic events in their lives and a cutting-edge Preconference on Psychopharmacology, addressing Multiple Diagnoses, Complex Care in emerging controversial areas of psychiatric practice.
    * An excellent opportunity to earn pharmacology credit for gaining or renewing prescriptive practice.
    * Main Conference topics developed to challenge your current daily practice and the broader concepts on which practice is built.
    * 20 Concurrent Session choices at each conference, spanning a wide spectrum of psychiatric nursing hot topics.
    * Case studies and built-in discussion time to encourage interaction and bring the didactic presentations to life.
    * Emphasis on clinical applications of the information presented.
